Output: (decimal) Returns the size of the next bet in a Masaniello progression. If returns zero the strategy is reset; this can happen for one of the following reasons:
The maximum number of losing bets in a round has been overcome.
The last bet was winning but partially matched. In this case the capital could be not enough to finish the round.
The next bet is the last bet of the round and the parameter skip_last is 1.

Id of the strategy.
Capital used by Masaniello progression. it is a good practice to give to the strategy a capital 10% greater than the one specified in this parameter: this to compensate eventual discrepancies, due for example the retirement of a horse or a dead heat.
The number of events we guess to win.
The total number of events of the progression.
The minimum price at which the bets will be placed.
The type of bets placed by the Masaniello progression; if b all the bets will be back type, if l all the bets will be lay type.
If it is equal to 1, the last bet of the Masaniello round is not placed and the strategy is reset. This is useful in a capital conservative approch, where we don't want to risk most of the capital of the round in a single bet (the last).
